Feldspathic veneers have been made popular by patients for their non-invasive preparation requirements, and their ability to allow the existing tooth shades to shine through.
This hand-crafted veneer is created with artistry by use of a brush and glass-based powder mixed with liquid. This material is highly translucent and mimics natural dentition when applied properly. To fabricate feldspathic veneers, the technician hand paints the veneer layer by layer so contour and texture can be controlled and crafted. Then the veneer is baked on a foil tray to solidify. The results are a highly esthetic restoration that is ideal for anterior restorations where shape, texture, and natural-beauty are priorities.
IPS e.max® is an advanced pressed ceramic with even greater strength than the original Empress product. This next generation ceramic is formulated from lithium disilicate crystals, and can be used to create limited bridgework with moderate to heavy connectors. It is monolithic lithium disilicate porcelain that can be pressed or milled as full contour restoration, or cut back and layered with porcelain.
